One workaround is to place the xrefs on defpoints layer and freeze layer 0.

If you put the xref on a locked layer it is non-selectable during a command IIRC.

Locking the Layer sounds like the better solution, and it is easily reversible.

Both are easily reversible.

Though being on the DEFPOINTS layer, it would not plot.

You could also just unload the XREF in the references window if it's not important to your linework.  When you're done working you would just right click and reload it.
